About William Fan
The German fashion designer with Asian roots has been showing regularly at Berlin Fashion Week following his successful debut at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in spring 2015. WILLIAM FAN was one of three designers presented at Milan Fashion Week SS17 by Mercedes-Benz and FCG. WILLIAM FAN distorts, composes and interprets a Euro-Asian context in his very own, elegant and calm way. The label offers a high quality and functional wardrobe that mixes classical tailoring with innovative materials for men and women. The designer’s passion and his striving for perfection result in a sophisticated transformation of a dialogue between Asian and European contrasts. It focuses on textures, innovative feel and specific closing techniques. Asian materials like cashmere and silk are combined with techno-polyester and bast fibre. This unconventional merging of materials creates a harmonic unison due to a modern tailoring.
